Jadon Sancho will have to apologise to Erik Ten Hag in order to return to the squad

Jadon Sancho is putting his Manchester United career at risk if he refuses to apologise following his public spat with manager Erik Ten Hag, according to sources. 

Sancho has been banished from training with the first team and is ordered to train separately after accusing Ten Hag of lying about the reasons he was not selected for the 3–1 loss to Arsenal prior to the international break.    

The two have held talks at Carrington during the week but the 23 year old has refused to say sorry and, until he does, no time frame for his return to the first team squad can be determined. 

As per sources Ten Hag will not back down without an apology from Sancho- both in private and public- and if Sancho refuses, it is highly likely that he will have to leave the club when the transfer window reopens in January.   

United on Thursday issued a brief statement that read “Jadon Sancho will remain on a personal training programme away from the first team group pending resolution of a squad discipline issue."

Sancho is not the first player asked by the board to apologise to Ten Hag. 

Last season when Cristiano Ronaldo was suspended for a game after disobeying and refusing to come on as a late substitute in a 2-0 over Tottenham, he was only brought back into the squad after showing remorse for his actions, which included a social media post. 

Although Sancho has deleted the social media post in which he accused Ten Hag of making him a “scapegoat for a long time” he has not yet made any sort of apology for the outburst. 

As per a source highlighting Sancho’s perspective- He believes he has been treated differently unlike other members of the squad. He was also not pleased with the club willing to hear offers for him in the final week of the transfer window. 

Sancho’s lucrative contract is another complication concerning his uncertain future at Old Trafford. He has deal until 2026 worth more than £300k-a-week, making it challenging to find a club agreeing to take him on without United having to take a huge financial toll.
